This is sad. This is so sad.
I would tell Madonna that in the future if you know a song is ‘retarded’ just don’t put it on an album i.e.: Sorry but then I quickly realized that could mean we never would have heard Into the Groove. Madonna should consider herself lucky that we would all listen to tripe like the aforementioned Sorry, I Love New York, and 4 Minutes a thousand times over if it means we could hear even a few fleeting seconds of Pop perfection like Into the Groove.

The songs that I think are the most retarded songs I’ve written, like ‘Cherish’ and ‘Sorry,’ a pretty big hit off my last album, end up being the biggest hits,” she tells RS. ” ‘Into the Groove’ is another song I feel retarded singing, but everybody seems to like it.”
